I've been in a nesting mood lately. You know what I mean - where we want to do things to our homes. I've not worked on making anything for my website for a couple of months now. But I've wanted to get my home fixed up the way I want it. It's been almost 2 years since we moved in! I want it comfortable and pink and rose-y and - well, you know what I mean.
But I've been thinking as I've been doing things around here. Sometimes I'll be in a store and want to just get in and out. You know what I mean. So in my hurry-ness, I neglect to approach an acquaintance and say "hello." I'll just move faster through the store and get to the check out so I can get home.
I've decided, with much thought and contemplation that it's rude. We should always say "hello" or "hi, how are you?" when we see them. You know what I mean. It just might be what that person needs. They may be struggling with a problem or be lonely. I know I get lonely. You know what I mean. It's kind of like that old saying "stop and smell the roses", which I definitely do! But this is a human being. And all we've truly got is each other. You know what I mean.
So the next time I'm shopping or in the hallway at church, I'm going to make it a point of saying "hello" or ask how they are doing. They may avert their eyes, but they can't escape me!! You KNOW what I mean. Right?!?!
